Discounted tickets available for over 75 Chicago shows!
Our fanz know Chicago is the comedy capital of the US, but a lot of people say it’s also the best American city for live theatre of all sorts. We’re proud to be part of the larger community of world-class performing artists that live and work here and we’re happy to support the first-ever Chicago Theatre Week, February 12-17, 2013. That week, audiences will have the chance to sample over 75 different theatre productions across the city at reduced prices. We think it’s a great reason for our out-of-town friends to plan a trip to the Windy City and for local residents to clear their schedules and sample the variety of live shows here in our city. (Including a trip to ComedySportz, we modestly suggest).
For this special week, participating theaters – including ComedySportz – are offering a limited number of tickets for either $15 or $30 per person. ComedySportz tickets are available for $15.00 online through Ticketmaster or through our box office by calling 773-549-8080.with the code THWEEK. The number available at this low price is strictly limited, so we recommend calling as soon as possible. The complete list of participating theaters and shows is online at www.chicagotheatreweek.com and information on ordering tickets for other theaters is provided there as well.
During the course of the week, there will be special events at participating theatres, including enrichment activities such as talk backs with artists. The most current listing of events and offers is available at www.chicagotheatreweek.com .
The timing of Chicago Theatre Week couldn’t be better. The dates include Valentine’s Day on February 14th – a wonderful day to experience something as special as live theater together. (We’ll have some special Valentine’s Day activities at ComedySportz as well.). And, the week leads up to President’s Day on Monday, February 18th – giving an extra day of travel time for out-of-town visitors to get back home after taking in a week of live Chicago theater and comedy!
Chicago Theatre Week is sponsored by the League of Chicago Theatre and Choose Chicago, the official agency for marketing Chicago to the world as a travel destination. ComedySportz is a proud member of both organizations and is thrilled to support this exciting event. For visitors and residents alike, this will be a great week to be in Chicago.
Tickets for our Late Night Double Feature Special can be reserved by calling 773-549-8080 and giving the code DOUBLE. *Offer good for shows performed through February 9, 2013.

ComedySportz Theatre Plans Extra Shows to Accommodate Holiday Week Calendar
With Christmas Day falling on a Tuesday this year, many will enjoy two extra-long weekends for Christmas and New Year’s Day. Even those who aren’t able to stretch the holiday week into an 11-day vacation from Saturday, December 22 through January 1 may be able to take off two four-day weekends from Saturday through Tuesday – allowing extra time for holiday activities with friends and visiting family members, To help our fanz and their guests fill the time with fun & memorable good times together, we’ve added extra shows for these extra days off.
For the weekend before Christmas, we’ll have a 5 PM Sunday show on December 23 in addition to our regular shows Thursday through Saturday. There will be no performances on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, but ComedySportz will be back on Wednesday, December 26th with a special 8 PM show (no Two-Dollar Bill that evening). The next night will feature our regular Thursday show at 8PM, followed by the final performance of the holiday show “A Minions Carol” at 10 PM (which is free to guests of the 10 PM show).
An extra Friday show at 6 PM will start off the second holiday weekend, along with shows at 8 & 10 pm (and the closing of our satirical“It’s a Bieberful Life” at midnight) on Friday the 28th. Our regular Saturday schedule of shows on December 29th will include performances at 6, 8 & 10 pm (plus the naughty & nice “Hot Karl” show at midnight) and there will be another Sunday matinee at 5 pm on Sunday, December 30th.
Once again, we’ll have three shows on New Year’s Eve, Monday, December 31st. The evening will start off with family shows at 5 & 7 pm for $24 per person – perfect for those with younger kids or those who just want to ring in the New Year from home. The Countdown to 2013 Show begins at 10 PM and the tickets (all $32) include a champagne toast and a dance party after midnight.
The holiday festivities will conclude with our third annual New Year’s Day Hangover Standup Marathon, featuring 20 comedians for just $10.00. The comics will be onstage from 6 to 10 pm.
Tickets for all ComedySportz shows (except the 10 PM New Year’s Eve show) range from $22 to $24 and can be ordered by phone at 773-549-8080 or online at ticketmaster.com.
